Meet Our Innovators/Leaders
At Kent Innovation High teaching and learning happen in a completely different way than traditional schools. It's so different that we don't have teachers. We have facilitators who work together in teams, much like how our students work together. Our facilitators very seldom provide a traditional lecture and instead act as coaches and mentors. They work with students to help them complete projects that address real life problems. They deliver "just-in-time" learning - what students need, when they need it based on the demands of each project.
All of our facilitators are certified teachers and their experience ranges from those at the very beginning of their careers to those with a decade or more of teaching under their belts.
